Mars square Uranus provokes wild impulses – a few are brilliant, but most are just reckless. Venus in Capricorn offers a strategic focus. Older women and classical arts offer helpful insights.
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): What you can accomplish now is remarkable. The trick is to trust in your inner reserves, but not overestimate them. Think ahead one step at a time, and know the line between faith in your abilities and hubris.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): As dedicated as you are to certain tenets, you are really ready for a shake-up to your basic beliefs and ideals. A practical examination of your assumptions will reveal room for adaptation in order to be even truer to your ideals.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): While being wild and rebellious will make you look sexy and challenging, that will probably not be helpful at work. If you can harness your energy and work with others to effect change, you can be a star at work and at play.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22): Looking too far ahead invites accidents and arguments. Let your partner lead, leaving you free to come up with creative suggestions. Some of them will be brilliant, but let your partner filter the brilliance from the B.S.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): New erotic revelations can lead you to explore techniques you hadn’t considered but find yourself very good at! This need not involve shopping for new toys. Your improvisational skills will open new possibilities.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Is “family drama” redundant? Your own could be fodder for a script, artwork, or any creative outlet. Whether or not your efforts are worth sharing, get the tension out of your system in a way that hones your artistic skills.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Most accidents happen at home only because we spend most of our time there. At this time, home is where you are “safest.” Still, be careful! Settle arguments about housekeeping, or try something new but not too radical – maybe one of those robot vacuums.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Fun, games, and lottery tickets seem to be calling your name. You could win, but, more likely, gambling will just cost you. Setting aside an appropriate amount and developing a strategy will at least limit your losses, and could help you win.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Everything you do at home seems to set off family, roommates, and smoke alarms. To settle the craziness, work on a household budget or list nonfinancial domestic priorities. Focus on what you really care about, and invest your energies there.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Slow and easy does it. You know that better than anyone – normally. Some anxiety is driving you forward, making you accident-prone. Focus on looking good, which for you means mature and calm.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): Could your friends be cheating you? Or are you just being overly generous? Focus your social activities on a few very good and trusted pals whose company you really treasure, and with whom money is not an issue.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Authority figures look like especially fair game now. Popping off without a well-considered strategy will only get you into trouble. Plot your rebellion carefully with friends, and you could emerge as queen of the hill. Keeping your new throne will be the next challenge!
